not know if the health-care cost dragon has been slain or is just hibernating. how much of the slow increase comes from the sluggish economic recovery where people without insurance postpone care over which they don't have any kind of discretion at all, and what about the chronic conditions that continued the development of more sophisticated and expensive treatments and tasks? and for the most expensive health care program there is the fact that 10,000 baby boomers are joining me in the over 65 club every day. despite the encouraging numbers about 2011 there is still a lot about this issue to be discussed and analyzed. and here we are with what i think is going to be a very good program on that topic. we are fairly pleased to have, as our partner in today's program, the commonwealth fund. and we are especially pleased to have as our co-moderator today, dr. david blumenthal. i will mention that his policy an analyst -- on top of his policy and analytical expertise he is a care -- welcome to your first online briefing as the head of commonwealth. we are pleased to have you here. >> i
your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections tuberculosis lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores have ha
, on national tv, that this government proposal we have is just one more choice for healthcare, and you can keep your private insurance you want it, at the time someone should have pointed out, wait a minute, if people don't have any choice what happens to their healthcare, their employer will decide. 200 million people have healthcare taken through employer paid insurance? so what choice do you and i if if we're working for dupont, what happens to our choices? now you know it costs a thousand per worker to insure a worker with health care and the government fine if you don't follow it is $2,000. so it's a perfect incentive to move more people off private insurance and health and human services as sebelius said, the private healthcare insurance industry is in a death spiral. of course they're in a death spiral. that the intention. if you eliminate then it's easier to move to singing-payer system which president obama has said, this is his goal and might take five, seven, eight, ten years. >> we're going next to ken and then alex and robert and then alicia, tom, chris, and lauren fox toned. >> i
, issues of healthcare. proverbs notes this, without a vision, the people perish. they do not literally perish. they just bicker and fight and become so polarized they cannot get anything done. we are in need of a new common, national vision. not once only democratic or solely republican. we need at least one goal where we can come together. that is where we need to go. god has given you a unique gift, mr. president. you have the ability to cast vision and inspire people. you should have been a preacher. [laughter] [applause] god actually has you exactly where god wants you. yesterday you begin to lay out a vision for us in your inaugural address was very powerful and compelling. somewhere we have got to find and forge one or two that dreams or visions that people on the right and they left, republicans and democrats, can come together and back hands on this. you hinted towards that yesterday. we have to remember our picture of the promised land. when we do that, anything is possible in america. i offer one small example of the power of vision from the church i serve in kansas city. one
for healthcare, rising prices for insurance, people losing their coverage, which they are in droves now. companies putting people on part-time work so they do not have to provide them with insurance. all kinds of effects are happening. all those realities accumulate, and as obama pushes the envelope beyond where the american people are comfortable , we could actually have the fulfillment of him going too far and then getting lost opportunities. >> you are nodding. do you think it went too far? >> overreached -- bill clinton in 1994. republicans thought that in 2000 x where the new governor of indiana said, hey, republicans are going to act like democrats with all that spending and government expansion, they will just hire the professionals. and they did. then you saw in 2010, dialing back of the extremism of the first two years. yes, i would like to back up to your original question. i stand in a very small circle of conservatives who have said publicly that obama has significant advantages and would probably win. a recent i said that, i am a professional pollster. i saw a couple things
what are people concerned about that health-care costs. to a lesser extents one economic growth is stronger, maybe they're worried about issues related to the environment. these are not issues that republicans like to talk about. they're not issues that are good at talking about. this is where it emerged in the late 1990's from a time when bill clinton had been something republicans up and down washington. the whole point of bush was to craft a republican party that had something to say about education. something like the prescription drug bill was too big and should have been paid for. the republican party will never give back to the wilderness. we have to keep our brand pure and make sure americans and no where the party of small government. americans are confident that the republican party is the party's small government. they did not vote for the republican party. it is possible that he should not nominate mitt romney next time and get a true conservative, if you look at opinion polls, barack obama won the election because people thought he cared about people like us. that i
this should the level restrict our ability in life-saving medical devices. that is just healthcare. now the president is implementing his agenda. we will see that the benefits are far less than advertised. the costs of this agenda are huge. we spend when chilean dollars more than we take in each year. we cannot keep that up -- we spend $1 trillion more than we taken each year. we cannot keep that up. that is a moment where our economy stalls. we will have to convince the country to change course. we had to reform entitlements. we had to revisit the healthcare law. clearly president obama does not want us to get that chance. he want his last two years to look just like his first two years of his presidency. it was to perpetuate progressive government for at least a generation. why? he thinks it is the right and to do. to do that, he needs to delegitimize the republican party and house republicans, in particular. he will try to divide us. he will try to get us to fight with each other, question each other so we do not challenge him. if we play into his hands, we will betray the voters who
the spending in 2013 and 2014. guest: it is hard to -- healthcare is an odd category. for most workers, it is paid for by your employer. you see a small share of the cost. others pay it out-of-pocket. for others, it is a government benefit. it shows up as government transfer payments. seeing how the affordable care act will work and affect these things, there is a lot we do not know. it was passed more than two years ago. we are just seeing how it will work and affect a lot of things in the economy. host: is this in your purview? guest: we only have data through 2012. it has been relatively little impact so far. we expect the numbers to show up more as we go into 2014. host: derek, minnesota, doing the same. caller: do you work for the government? are you independent? guest: i work for the government at the bureau of economic analysis as part of the department of congress. we put up economic statistics as our main business. caller: do you have relatives in there? host: your question? caller: what we are talking about today is how americans are doing financially. i look at it from 50-ye
to be a tough sale. the attorney general who we know, very conservative guy, brought that healthcare lawsuit against obama, even he said over the weekend he thought this was a bad idea. i am not sure this is going anywhere. >> let me ask you: isn't the e look lectora college spelled out? the only tunnelling the constitution says is there is an e electoral college and it doesn't say how states have stodecide those. >> states can decide how they choose their -- how they divide up their electoral votes? >> yes. >> that's the instructions on how to vote office right? >> right. >> electtors technically don't have straight for barack obama or anybody else. >> isn't this one of a piece with all of the efforts we saw in the last two years to reece press or suppress the vote, whatever the word is, in over 20-something states? right? by limiting the number of days for early voting keeping the summed before, like shooting things down? or requiring a photo id? this is all an effort to rig the process. >> yes. >> maybe to change their policies or politics? >> exactly. >> in

,000 a year because of smoking-related deaths. where do these costs come from in healthcare? >> somebody has to pay them obviously. we know this equation that they create more healthcare costs for the system. but as you point out, tucker, this could be considered preexisting condition. it's addictive. if you are addicted to cigarettes and you are a smoker and you have some of these health conditions. you have preexisting conditions. if you are overweight from all -- all of these are personal responsibilities. if you are overweight from overeating not a preexisting condition. >> insurance companies ought to be able to decide what they charge people. of course people voluntarily taking big health risks ought to pay more. there is no reason why people who don't watch their weight. only smokers are being single out. why is that? not because they're the most expensive. smokers save the system money because they die earlier. they take less out in social security. this is not one crackpot's opinion. that's a fact. smokers are unpopular, unpopular people wind up being penalized disproportionately. o
, the economy, healthcare, reducing the deficit, or addressing climate change. he is respected by leaders of the government, and if you add it all up, i think he is spent most of the last four years leading interagency meetings, hearing people out, listening to them, forging consensus, and making sure policies are implemented and everybody is held accountable. he always holds himself accountable first and foremost. it is no easy task, but through it all denis mcdonough does it with class, integrity and thoughtfulness for other people's point of views. he is the consummate public servant, he plays it straight and that is the kind of teamwork that i want in the white house. time and again i have relied on dennis to help in the outreach to our immigrant and faith communities. he understands that in the end our policies and programs are measured in the concrete differences that they make in the lives of fellow human beings and the values that we advance as americans. he insists on knowing for himself the real world impact of the decisions that we make, so away from the cameras without fanfare
